After Drinking Too Much Wine The Night Before, Man Spends 4 Months Building A Hobbit House

This guy  may have had a little too much wine at a charity auction about a year ago. This led to him bidding on, and winning the facade of a hobbit house. He said the next morning he woke up and his very first thought was “Oh s**t – I bought a hobbit house last night.” At this point he could have cut his losses and sold or stored his winnings in some garage letting it go to complete waste. But instead he decided to make the most of things and build an awesome playhouse for his kids. The dimensions are 18 feet wide and 8 feet deep. Ceiling is 6′ – 6″ at the high point. So as you can imagine it is for kids. Or hobbits.
